Abstract

R-R interval variation of ECG has been used as an autonomic function test in diabetic autonomic neuropathy and various neurological disorders (1). Although R-R interval variation has been determined at various times of the day, it has not yet been clarified whether or not there are significant circadian variations and changes caused by sleep stages.
